3 men pull out guns outside of Rouses after man tries to shoplift steak, Mobile police say

MOBILE, Alabama -- On Friday afternoon a tense scene played out in front of the Rouses Supermarket on Theodore Dawes Road. Three people drew their guns after a reported theft, a Mobile Police Department spokesman said.

Donnie James Moore, 60 had shoplifted steaks from the grocery store before officers arrived at 12:20 p.m., according to MPD. When a loss prevention officer tried to stop him, Moore shoved past him. Moore made it to his car, where he grabbed a gun.

He pulled it on the officer, MPD spokesman Officer Terence Perkins said. The loss prevention officer stepped back and pulled his own gun and aimed it at Moore.

Another man watched the scene play out from his car. He pulled out his own gun and pointed it at Moore before either man could decide whether or not to shoot.

The bystander fired multiple shots at Moore' car. In response the 60-year-old jumped into the car and drove off.

Police found him a short time later as he tried to replace one of his damaged tires, Perkins said.

Officers said the bystander, who was not identified, will not face charges for opening fire on Moore.

"He acted in defense of someone else," Perkins said. "If you happen to see a situation (where) deadly force is going to be used, you have the right to defend."

Well done .... the guys carrying the guns .... not the steaks.

Check out all of this thug's mug shots. This thug was carrying a gun? He needs to be locked in a cage for a very long time.

Maybe we can make a trade with Central America? We send our thugs to you since you're sending a lot of your criminals to us.

Do you think those guys would have taken so long to decide whether or not to shoot if a poodle had run out of the store with a steak in his jaws? /s;)

“Why are my hunches almost always right?”

Because it’s the world we now inhabit.

We have two classes these days. Those who feel entitled to whatever they can grab, and those who work to support them.

The people who have been pulling the cart are getting pretty tired of those who insist on always riding. And those in the traces are not allowed to complain while those riding are forever demanding more and more...

Singularity.

A Gunny on YouTube helped me out immensely. He told me to buy a CO2 pistol and practice in my basement (eye protection and face protection!). It just worked. The Beretta PX4 Storm was the best realistic simulator at a fraction of the cost of range time. He did me right.

As a society, we just must be ready. Ammunition prices are finally down, but not as much as CO2 pellets. It worked for me. A thousand rounds was nothing (including the shop vac). It was the same as the range. Finger placement, safety and reaction just works.

JMHO. The military did not want me at the time for medical reasons. I trained anyways. Ever patriot should do the same.

BTTT.

Mr. Moore, for future reference, wherever you might have put the steak, you’re supposed to put the potato down the front of your pants.

Moore made it to his car, where he grabbed a gun.

I bet he would not have had a gun if Bloomie's universal background checks would have passed/s

I don't know, but whoever said it, did not know what he was talking about. Seriously though, there may be some who outgrow it, but a lot who don't.

Locking criminals away for a long time would be detrimental to our legal system.

Mobile County Metro Jail records show Moore has faced multiple arrests since 1987.

If you lock them away forever, at some point the legal system would have much, much less to do. That translates to fewer judges, clerks, lawyers, court reporters, police, .... Fewer criminals means justice served swifter & less costly. What lawyer/legislator wants that?

No, we have to release these predators after about 6 months in jail so that they can feed the legal system & all its hungry jackals.

This is why criminal laws are written (of the lawyers, by the lawyers, for the lawyers) in 10-20,000 words or MORE. Complex laws REQUIRE many lawyers & judges to interpret them in a way that best suits them, justice & public safety be damned.

Here's an idea: Anyone found guilty of a crime of violence or the threat of violence goes to jail for life, making pebbles from boulders with a sledge hammer. Anyone found guilty of injury or death of a victim gets the death penalty via public hanging. It wont be but a few years before crime, especially the violent kind, diminishes significantly, primarily because the vast majority of repeat criminals are dead or in jail.

Steaks! What was he planning on doing with them?

Anyway, I'm glad the Alabamians pulled their guns and brought this beef-thief to justice.

Speaking of steaks, I'm headed to the butcher's shop later to get some thick porterhouses for the grill. They are charging about $15 a pound right now but well worth it. I'm going to grill some ears of corn and asparagus to go with them and the wife is going to cook up a big pot of rice and drizzle it with extra virgin olive oil. Along with a couple bottles of deep red wine.

This is exactly what’s wrong with our so-called “justice system.” Our courts have a “blank check” from the taxpayers. They keep churning these thugs at the risk to the citizens paying for their shell game.

How much has this one worthless thug cost taxpayers? Multiple arrests, court appointed lawyers, law enforcement, grandstanding judges, prisons, healthcare, courts, food, etc.? Fortunately, this worthless thug that these grandstanding “honorable” judges kept churning onto innocent taxpayers didn’t kill anyone yet .... or at least not that we know of.

We hear of judges turning them free because they’re concerned about humane conditions for these criminal thugs. What about humane conditions for innocent citizens? The thugs that commit violent crime should be moved to an island where they cannot leave and no one can visit or spend the rest of their lives in a cage.

If they stock the same merchandise in your neck of the woods as they do here, look for the, “steak cut bacon.” It’s extreeeeemely thick and takes a long time to fry, but in the end, you have what can best be described as bacon cookie, lol.
